Overview

The world has changed. It's not as easy to meet people, and it's definitely not as easy to find your soul mate.

At the very core, two people need to have similar styles, interests, and values when it comes to loving and living. So, how do you find lasting love? Dr. Pepper Schwartz believes that if you’re ready for a serious relationship, it's time for a serious approach.

Described by Dr. Judith Sills as "insightful, brilliantly original and extremely useful," Dr. Schwartz's DuetTM Total Compatibility System is designed to help you find someone you'll be compatible with on the deepest levels.

Finding Your Perfect Match will help you:

  • Identify the eight romantic personality characteristics that determine who you are, what you want and ultimately, who you should be with.

  • Explore the five major lifestyle issues that can have a dramatic impact on you and your partner: money, sex, children, core values, and social life.

A lasting, loving relationship can only develop with someone who matches those needs and is truly compatible with you, but it's not as hard as you think. You just have to be willing to take a different approach. Dr. Schwartz has done thirty years of relationship research to save you a lifetime of searching.

In her new book, ¿Finding the Perfect Match¿ , Dr. Pepper Schwartz, who helped put the ¿perfect¿ in Perfectmatch.com, brings three crucial attributes to the seemingly impossible task of helping people find and hold onto a mate worth having: intelligence, experience and a sense of humor. Building on more than 30 years of experience, not only doing her own research, but communicating the findings of several major areas of research and current thought to a wide variety of audiences, Dr. Schwartz lays out a means of first analyzing ¿what makes you tick¿ and then finding out what sort of other person is or is not likely to make a good fit with you. You don¿t want to be ¿the energizer bunny married to a sloth¿ any more than being a ¿glass-half-full¿ optimist married to someone always ¿raining on your parade¿. Dr. Schwartz uses a series of rather painless but probing questionnaires to lead the reader to an understanding of a series of eight major characteristics about yourself and any prospective partner you might currently, or sometime in the future, be considering as a mate. She then explains in readily digestible form, the meaning and implications of the answers to these questions and how they can guide you into making the best relationship decisions of your life ¿ both in avoiding those painful mismatches that have driven you nuts in the past and in pursuing the one that just might finally put it all together for you. She waves no magic wands of course, and there are no written guarantees at the back of the book, but if you want to get a better sense of who you are and who you should be looking for out there, Dr. Schwartz lights the path exceedingly well while making the pitfalls a whole lot easier to see.
